Every year, state fairs across the nation present attendees with hundreds of food tents with hundreds of options, most of which are fried and on a stick.
Since calorie count is no object and only the guiltiest of pleasures are considered as ingredients, the food selection is often ridiculously delicious for Americans craving the junkiest of junk food.
Over the years, venders have also learned they can deep fry anything and we'll eat it. That doesn't help Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign much, but it did lead to this years controversial staple at the Iowa State Fair, deep fried butter on a stick! Yum?
